IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: As with all corticosteroids, VETALOG should be used with care in all stages of pregnancy.

Common adverse reactions:

As with any corticosteroid, polydipsia or polyuria may occur with high dosage or frequent administration of triamcinolone acetonide. The likelihood of their occurrence may be minimized by giving as brief a course of corticosteroid therapy as possible, and by waiting for the reappearance of symptoms before repeating therapy. If polydipsia or polyuria should occur, therapy should be discontinueduntil these unwanted effects have disappeared; therapy should thenbe resumed at a lower dosage level.

Other adverse reactions that have occurred with the use of corticosteroids are weight loss, anorexia and diarrhea (occasionally bloody).

Caution: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of alicensed veterinarian.

Intramuscular or subcutaneous

The dose is a single injection of 0.05 mg to 0.1 mg triamcinolone acetonide per pound of body weight in inflammatory or allergic disorders and 0.1 mg per pound of body weight in dermatologic disorders.

Intralesional

The usual intralesional dosage is 1.2 mg to 1.8 mg triamcinolone acetonide. Injections should be circumscribed around the lesion in various sites to insure adequate distribution of the dose. Injections should be spaced 0.5 cm to 2.5 cm apart, depending on the size of the lesion.

Intra-articular

The dose for intra-articular or intrasynovial administration is dependent on the size of the joint to be treated and on the severity of symptoms. A single injection of 1 mg to 3 mg triamcinolone acetonide for cats and dogs is recommended.
